I am trying to get Firefly running on my Freecom wireless FSG to serve a Roku Soundbridge Homemusic. I have followed the install guide but whilst the SB sees the FSG through a wireless link it does not pick up on the server. Any ideas?
Currently I have Firefly running on my desktop happily serving up music and radio to the SB. I just want to migrate my music to the FSG but not successful as yet 🙁
My FSG is running firmware 4.4.5 – which is the version which seems to address wireless issues i.e. the wireless connects work.
> Which version of firefly did you install?
FSG reports that package mt-daapd installed is version 0.2.4.2-1
>Any difference between wired/wireless connectivity compared to your desktop?
My SB is the M400PX which only has a wireless connect. My desktop works happily wirelessly with the SB moving through an old Barricade router and an access point. The FSG does not have to contend with any of this stuff to talk to the SB.
It is indeed a start to rule out several options causing trouble.
Have you confirmed that firefly is functional on your FSG? Maybe firefly was installed incorrectly on your FSG.
When running iTunes on your desktop, it should see the FSG share as a shared music dir. (If they’re on the same network)
Also, I’d recommend installing the latest nightly. It’s a quite stable build and several things were fixed.
That might also fix your problem with the SB.
Too bad my knowledge doesn’t go past debian.
If yours is anything like it, you could try the following option.
Check if there exists a script at /etc/init.d/mt-daapd .
If so, you can start and stop using /etc/init.d/mt-daapd start/stop.
You can have this script run at boot using ‘update-rc.d mt-daapd defaults’.
This adds the /etc/init.d/mt-daapd script to run at boot.
If this doesn’t apply for your OS, I’m afraid I can’t help you.
